A new green landscape is to be created, transforming the view out and connecting the upper and lower gardens with the internal living space.

The new triple height extension and double height living area provides an uninterrupted view all the way through to the garden from the entrance at raised ground floor.

Kew House

Richmond, London

This end of terrace house located within the Kew Foot Road Conservation Area is to be transformed, providing a new open plan living area.

The existing uninsulated, single glazed outrigger is to be rebuilt with high performance insulation and bespoke timber framed triple glazing to improve thermal performance, but also reduce noise from the Heathrow flight path. The current, poorly lit lower ground floor is to be reworked, creating a light filled, double-height living space with views of the sky and newly terraced garden.

Stepping the extension, instead of extending full width, avoids losing valuable natural light from an overly deep plan - especially when north facing. Instead, the extension captures the morning light coming from the east and the existing internal footprint remains as bright as possible.

The garden is entirely re-landscaped to provide a series of terraced planters, opening up the view out from the extension and creating a bowl effect of greenery.

Built in 1884, refurbished and extended in 2024.
